The documentary Farmageddon exposes the slow attack on America’s small farmers by Big Agriculture and the governmental policies that uphold it.
According to FarmageddonMovie.com, “Americans’ right to access fresh, healthy foods of their choice is under attack. Farmageddon tells the story of small, family farms that were providing safe, healthy foods to their communities and were forced to stop, sometimes through violent action, by agents of misguided government bureaucracies, and seeks to figure out why.”
The screening to be followed by discussion of the issues raised in the film. Potlucking encouraged!
